Berkeley Energy Police Coming
A reader sends along a recent Survey USA poll question:
The city of Berkeley is considering a law that would require all homes to be audited to be sure they meet strict energy standards in the city’s plan to fight global warming. This would mean new double-paned windows, attic insulation, a new white roof that reflects heat, a forced-air furnace and high-efficiency appliances. Do you think this law is a good idea? Or a bad idea?
The survey, asked of 500 Berkeley, California adults, had a plurality of 46 percent Yes responses, 44 percent No, and 10 percent Not sure. Indeed, 46 percent of self-identified Republicans and 40 percent of self-identified conservatives responded Yes.
